So be prepared for a little hassle if you want to buy this product. I haven't tried any other modems so I can't tell you if they are as difficult.
I wish dlink had included an installation cd as well.......instead all they do is give you a manual on a cd but after reading 68 pages you still don't know how to fix your problems....
All in all though I really do like this product......even with the hook up problems. It is so much nicer to have a modem and a router in one and looks much neater. Also my computers are running faster.....that shows the old modem was really on it's last leg.
I was a little dismayed by some of the more highly rated reviews of this modem/router as most of them complained about having to enter DSL settings manually when you get to the browser gateway to setting up service. I noted, however, that most of these particular reviews are from 2008 to 2010.
Thankfully, it appears that D-Link has updated their setup gateway in the last 4-6 years! The box comes with an installation CD, that I recommend nervous/novice users to use. If you are a bit more technologically sure of yourself, the browser setup does appear intimidating when you first get to it, but there is a setup wizard as soon as you get past setting up your Admin password. (Default Admin password is "Admin" - without the quotes.)
I've posted a couple of screenshots of the setup process so you can see there is a box you check, in step 3 of the wizard, that allows the unit to figure out the DSL settings for you. I've circled it in red, so you can't miss it. Right underneath the 6 fields it looks like you have to fill out yourself, there's the box at the bottom that says next to it: "Enable DSL Auto-scan." Just click that, and then the "Next" button below that. You don't have to call your ISP. (At least I didn't.)
You should pretty much be in the clear after Step 3. That really was the intimidating part. I hope this helped!
**For some reason, Amazon won't let me caption my pics. So here they are:
Pic 1: "This is the screen you will see after you set up your Admin password. Next you'll click the Setup Wizard button."
Pic 2: "You don't need to know the connection type, VPI or VCI, etc... just click the box to enable DSL Auto-scan, and you're past the worst of the setup process. They really should just put this box at the top, or at least mention this option with the description at the top of the page."
I also want to add that doing some research on NewEgg on this unit, several reviewers there were extremely adamant that you should NOT, NOT, NOT do a firmware update, or it will render the unit unusable. There's also a review or two here on Amazon that says the same thing.
The D-Link DSL-2540B fit the bill but I was hesitant as I needed to configure the ne modem in Bridge or Bridging mode as I use PPPoE to connect to the net from my Airport Extreme base station. I found the following config info on the net (see below) while researching various solutions, and when my DSL-2540B today, I was up and running within 10 minutes.
Performance and connectivity have been great.
AT&T Bridge Mode Settings
Connect your computer directly to the D-Link. Use a cable, as Wi-Fi masochism is beyond the scope of this document. Browse to [...] in the browser of your choice. If your system has assigned itself a 169.mumble address, you will first need to manually assign your computer an IP address like 192.168.1.5, a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and a default gateway of 192.168.1.1 to do so.
You should be challenged for a username and password to proceed. By default these are both set to "admin" and you really ought to change this at some point.
You should be presented with a Home / Wizard screen. Un-check the box labeled "DSL Auto-connect." This will allow you to specify the VPI and VCI for your connection. For most ISPs in the AT&T ILEC footprint, this will be 0 and 35 respectively. Click Next.
You should be prompted to set the connection type. Select the radio button labeled "Bridging" and the pull-down menu option labeled "LLC/SNAP-BRIDGING." Click Next.
You will be presented with the Device Setup screen. The default settings will suffice for most home use. Click Next.
You will be presented with the wireless configuration screen. If you wish to disable wireless for some reason (and should have bought at 2320B instead), un-check the box labeled "Enable Wireless." Click Next.
You will be presented with a summary of your configuration. Read it carefully to ensure that it understood you correctly, then click the button labeled "Save / Reboot." The DSL-2640B will restart, after which you should have Internet connectivity.
